All Rutherford had to do was catch 3 rugby balls shot high into the air by a machine. He of course dropped one and only won £10,000 not £1 million for charity.
This reminds me of when my college coach asked the guys, "How did you get into track?"
It was so embarrassing when half the guys answered, "We got cut from the other sports."

PS. I played varsity basketball in HS for the record.
He tried the catch the second ball with the other one underneath his arm, that's just stupid. The other reason, in my opinion, is that track athletes loose the skill to catch a ball because it just isn't necessary. I played ruby and cricket for four years while in high-school and did it at decent level, but I stopped when I went to University and just focused on running, now I can't catch a ball to save my life.
